after the storm.

What a week! I almost don't know where to start. I think the best place might be to give out a great big THANK YOU JESUS! For those who don't know, the flooding in Atlanta this week has put our little town in the national spotlight. That's right, Austell definitely saw the worst of it, and our little house only barely missed the bullet. A convergence of rivers and creeks rose out of control creating a virtual island around our house. It truly was only by the grace of the Almighty that we managed to come out unscathed. Here are a few roads in and around our neighborhood.

(OK... So this last picture was definitely the only funny thing about this situation... but you gotta give it up to Kanye for supplying some much needed comic relief.)
But seriously, Andy and I feel unbelievably lucky. There are so many other families around us who have lost everything. Our hearts break for them and all we can do is continually pray and thank God for his undeserved blessings.

Speaking of blessings.... Here's another BIG one... in the midst of all this chaos, an angel was born. Our new little niece, Lexie Grace made her grand entrance at 2:35 AM Wednesday morning. She is perfect and loved and adored!
